Show'n Tell: Self Portrait

{Show'n} Everything I'm Not, Made Me Everything I Am
Everything I'm Not Made Me Everything I Am

here i am :) bit larger than life for me but a decent image none the less! like most who are obsessed with being behind the camera... i too hate
stepping out in front of it, but am quickly learning to have a new comfort & confidence level. for this shot i set up a backdrop of black fabric in our upstairs bath {which gets excellent natural light}, also used my studio light to put a spark of light in my eye, helps make your subject come to life with a bit of light.
lastly i cropped, then converted to b&w for a more subtle feel.
{ps! remotes really help when it comes to selfies & family images, love mine!!!}

more selfies:
Photography love...

I also want to say thank you to Chelsey for once again featuring my image as a favorite for last week's challenge,
Contemplate Your Shot, if you haven't stopped by go have a look, you won't regret it!

Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama
good luck stepping out from behind
the camera ladies, you can do it!!!

Very nice photo! I do worry that in years to come there will be very few pics of me to show my great-grandchildren... :)

This is an excellent self-portrait. It does get easier ... being in front of the camera instead of behind it ... doesn't it.
